prague stockholm and oslo. tune in tomorrow night at 9:00 p.m. eastern for our special "blindsided, how isis shook the world." thanks to all of you for being part of my program this week. i will see you next week. happening now in the newsroom. >> right now, a very pronounced funnel cloud and tornado in progress. >> a wild weather weekend. >> i haven't seen anything like this in a long time. >> damaging winds, floods, even blizzards in the plains and ana hammering parts of the east coast. >> plus two officers shot and killed in the line of duty. >> they go out every day to make sure we're safe. >> a simple traffic stop turns onto a deadly encounter and rips a community apart. >> 30 years ago was the last time this happened in
hattiesburg. >> an historic meeting. raul castro and pope francis have a private conversation at the vatican. >> obviously, this comes at a time of dramatically improving relations. >> what did they discuss? newsroom starts now. hello and happy mother's day. i'm anna cabrera in for fredricka whitfield. two oefrs gunned down and killed in a traffic stop in hattiesburg, mississippi. three suspects in custody after a massive manhunt overnight. they will face a judge tomorrow. rosa flores is joining us now from new york. >> reporter: good afternoon. we hear it from law enforcement officials all the time.
there is no such thing as a routine traffic stop. that's exactly what we have here. hattiesburg officials telling cnn they visited the families of these two police officers and promised them those suspects would be hunted down and brought to justice. a traffic stop ended in a hail of gun fire saturday night leaving two hattiesburg, mississippi, police officers dead and three suspects in custody. police say curtis banks and his brother marvin banks fled the crime scene. allegedly stealing a police cruiser and using it as a get away car. both were arrested hours later after a brief manhunt. mayor johnny dupuis says the third suspect joni callaway was driving the car at the time of the traffic stop and was arrested shortly after the shooting. >> this is a horrific time for people around the nation when you have police officer ss sworn
to serve and protect and this ruthless kind of action happens. >> reporter: callaway and marvin banks are charged with two counts of capital murder each. curtis banks faces two counts of accessory after the fact of capital murder according to officials. >> we take care of you, we want to ensure all the people of hateiesburg and surrounding areas they are still safe in hattiesburg. >> reporter: authorities are only saying officer dean initiated the traffic stop called for backup and officer tate responded to the call. as for the families of the two slain officers there is little comfort to be found. ronald tate the father of officer tate expressed his grief on facebook posting several times throughout the nice saying "well, lord i had been praying it was all just a mistake. my baby. i just need some kind of mercy
right now." and later, "my heart has been ripped out movie chest and torn into a million pieces. i'm in a dizzy haze since 10:11 p.m. last night. i just want to be able to move again. right now, i can't." in a press conference he pledged to seek justice for both families. i talked to tate's father over the phone. he just tells me that he is devastated. the only thing that's helping him at the moment he says is that he knew that his son was living his dream as a police officer. ana. >> such a sad story. rosa flores thanks for staying on top of it. >> 35 million people in the u.s. are facing the threat of severe storms today. you might be one of them. texas and oklahoma are expected to be hit the hardest with possible tornados and large hail. several tornados already slammed the plains yesterday killing at least one person west of dallas.
and a blizzard warning is in effect for south dakota right now. snow piled as high as 17 inches in some parts of the state. that looks cold doesn't it? in colorado the rockies had to postpone another baseball game. they posted this video of a snowy stadium ahead of the baseball game today. we have a closer look at this weekend's wild weather. >> reporter: at least three tornados swept through parts of texas this weekend in what's been a wild weather event throughout the country. >> right now a very pronounced funnel cloud and tornado in progress. >> reporter: more than 40 tornados in texas, colorado kansas nebraska and oklahoma. flash flooding and hail in the same region a blizzard in wyoming. a tropical storm making landfall. it's been a wild and deadly weather weekend across the u.s. this twister west of the dallas/ft. worth area killed at least one person and left
another critically injured. several buildings in cisco, texas, totalled. the tornado ripped off roofs, smashed brick walls and snapped trees in half. >> i lived in cisco over ten years now and i haven't seen anything like this in a long time. all this water, telephone poles, trees ripped out of the ground. it's definitely very powerful, very destructive. >> reporter: storm dumped rain and hail. a reporter shot this video out of his back door friday. all that water and more rain left neighborhoods in oklahoma city flooded on saturday. there is a slight risk of more severe weather in the area today. cold air behind the weekend weather system is producing snow. this is not what these high school soccer players bargained for in wyoming. their match had to be canceled when a blizzard rolled through the city. and the first tropical storm of
the year is coming ashore along the carolina coast as tropical storm ana makes landfall there is a threat of coastal flooding gusty winds and possibly an isolated tornado. to close this tale of bizarre weather, another strange sight. a funnel cloud and rainbow. this video captured the unlikely alliance in colorado. here in the dallas/ft. worth area we've seen rain some ominous clouds. for the most part we've been largely spared from the severe weather. >> thanks alina. the historic meeting between pope francis and raul castro as castro thanked the pope for theying to thaw the relationship between u.s. and cuba. what else they talked about when we come back. all i can think about is getting relief. nicorette mini starts to relieve sudden cravings fast. anytime. anywhere. i never know when i'll need relief. that's why i choose nicorette mini.
♪ switch to t-mobile and never settle. across america, people are taking charge of their type 2 diabetes... ...with non-insulin victoza. for a while, i took a pill to lower my blood sugar but it didn't get me to my goal. so i asked my doctor about victoza. he said victoza works differently than pills and comes in a pen. victoza is proven to lower blood sugar and a1c. it's taken once a day, any time. and the needle is thin. victoza is not for weight loss but it may help you lose some weight. victoza is an injectable prescription medicine that may improve blood sugar in adults with type 2 diabetes when used with diet and exercise. it is not recommended as the first medication to treat diabetes and should not be used in people with type 1 diabetes or diabetic ketoacidosis. victoza has not been studied with
mealtime insulin. victoza is not insulin. do not take victoza if you have a personal or family history of medullary thyroid cancer multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2, or if you are allergic to victoza or any of its ingredients. symptoms of a serious allergic reaction may include swelling of face lips, tongue or throat fainting or dizziness, very rapid heartbeat problems breathing or swallowing, severe rash or itching. tell your doctor if you get a lump or swelling in your neck. serious side effects may happen in people who take victoza including inflammation of the pancreas (pancreatitis) which may be fatal. stop taking victoza and call your doctor right away if you have signs of pancreatitis, such as severe pain that will not go away in your abdomen or from your abdomen to your back with or without vomiting. tell your doctor about all the medicines you take and if you have any medical conditions. taking victoza with a sulfonylurea or insulin may cause low blood sugar. the most common side effects are nausea, diarrhea, and headache.
let's turn to the historic pete meeting between the president of cuba and pope at the vatican today. only the third meeting ever with the head of a catholic church and cuban leader. raul castro asked for the meeting to thank the pontiff in person to helping broker a better relationship between the u.s. and cuba. joining me to discuss, senior analyst at the national security archive and author of the book "back channel to cuba hidden negotiations between washington and havana." thanks for joining us. what struck you as significant about this visit? >> it's an important visit. it seems to be a preliminary visit between raul castro and the pope in anticipation of the pope's visit to cuba on his way
to the united states of america. the two of them have a lot to talk about. the pope was a special, very secret interlocutor in this arrangement to bring the united states and cuba together. he oversaw secret negotiating session at the vatican last october and was instrumental getting the obama administration and raul castro past the history of suspicion and into an accord to normalize diplomatic relations. >> it seemed from what i read of this visit, that the cuban leader was quite taken with the pontiff. reports coming out of this meeting saying that castro commented that he reads all of the speeches pope francis makes. even says he may return to the catholic church after all this. do you think it's the pope's heritage his south american roots that are giving him this strong pull with castro or more? >> i definitely think it is in keeping with the fact the pope
is from argentina. not only is he from argentina, he has a sensibility about the issue of cuba that is very different than the eastern european popes and u.s. perspective. he is somebody who studied the issue of cuba written in the past about u.s./cuban relationships. philosophically is focused on building bridges between countries that don't have positive relations. in some ways pope francis is in his element here in bringing a latin american country, basically the last country to not have normal relations with the united states into the fold of interamerican relations. it's a completely understandable why the pope who speaks beautiful spanish can get along so well with raul castro. >> yet really, cuba hasn't been all that friendly when it comes to the catholic church. it shunned the catholic church way back when in the late 1950s.
i know it started to accept some of the catholic church or the christian faith in general back in the 1990s when i know then president fidel castro made christmas a holiday, but really this is not a catholic country. what gives? >> the church has become a key player over the last 20 years in cuban civil society, in cuban religious society, and now in the economic transformation of cuba the cuban church. raul castro has established pretty good relations with the cardinal of cuba. cardinal ortega has a very good relationship with this pope. he's been back and forth to rome a number of times. there's a different relationship between the castro regime and the religious communities, not just the catholic community but the jewish community and other religious communities in cuba.
the issue of the revolution and the whole issue of the church and the revolution back in the 60s and '70s and '80s is past history the future will be somewhat different. this whole experience with the pope's involvement in bringing the united states and cuba together now making a trip to cuba and certainly from there carrying whatever kind of message he is going to carry to the obama administration this is indicative of a much more positive and smooth normal relation between the cuban revolution and the catholic church on the island. >> this meeting and what was discussed, perhaps another sign of progress in the communist nauseous. peter kornbluh thank you for joining us. >> thank you for having me. candid words from michelle obama on the emotional toll being the first black lady. >> then there was the first time i was on a magazine cover.

checking top stories, angela merkel meeting in moscow today with vladimir putin about a cease-fire in eastern ukraine. merkel says conditions in that cease-fire agreed to in february still aren't being met. complicating the humanitarian aid and prisoner exchange efforts. earlier merkel paid tribute to the world war ii russian victims. police say a mass shooting last night near zurich may have been sparked by a family dispute. investigators found five people dead after residents heard gun shots. that shooter was among those killed. first lady michelle obama getting attention after a bold statement. she told a group of graduates that she's been held to a different standard because of her race. during a commencement speech at
tuskegee university she talks about the trials she faced as the first african-american first lady. and the hurtful comments she endured during her husband's 2008 campaign. >> i also imagine that you might think about all that history, all those heroes who came before you, you might also feel a little pressure you know? pressure to live up to the legacy of those who came before you. pressure to meet the expectations of others. believe me i understand that kind of pressure. i've experienced a little bit of it myself. you see, graduates, i didn't start out as the fully formed first lady who stands before you today. no no. i had my share of bumps along the way. back when my husband first started campaigning for president, folks had all sorts of questions of me. what kind of first lady would i be? what kinds of issues would i
take on? would i be more like laura bush or hillary clinton or nancy reagan? and the truth is those same questions would have been posed to any candidate's spouse. that's just the way the process works. but as potentially the first african-american first lady i was also the focus of another set of questions and speculations conversations sometimes rooted in the fears and misperceptions of others. was i too loud? or too angry or too emasculating or too soft too much of a mom, not enough of a career woman? then there was the first time i was on a magazine cover. it was a cartoon drawing of me with a huge afro and a machine gun. now, yeah it was satire but if i'm really being honest it
knocked me back a bit. it made me wonder just how are people seeing me? or you might remember the on stage celebratory fist bump between me and my husband after a primary win referred to as a terrorist fist jab. and over the years, folks have used plenty of interesting words to describe me. one said i exhibited a little bit of uppityism. another noted i was one of my husband's cronies of color. cable news charmingly referred to me as obama's baby mama. and of course barack has endured his fair share of insults and slights, even today there are still folks questioning his citizenship. >> the first lady also told the graduates they will face hardships in the years ahead, but to not give up hope. in the coming weeks she will
give two more commencement speeches. one in ohio and at a high school in chicago. it is the middle of spring but there is a blizzard warning in effect right now in south dakota. a much different extreme weather threat facing millions of other americans. that's next. if you can't put a feeling into words, why try? at 62,000 brush movements per minute philips sonicare leaves your mouth with a level of clean like you've never felt before. innovation and you. philips sonicare.

including this one caught on camera in southeast colorado. dozens of tornados reported in nebraska oklahoma and texas. parts of the lone star state could be hit yet again. some are still cleaning up from three confirmed twisters there yesterday. one of them striking the town of cisco, about 100 miles west of ft. worth, leaving one person dead another critically injured. and ripping down power lines. demolishing houses. you see roof tops torn right off. forecasters are putting northeast texas dead center in the tornado threat area today. jennifer gray joins us from cisco, texas. what is expected in the coming hours? >> reporter: we are a couple miles away from where several homes suffered a total loss. just down the hill here this is about as far as we can go because we have downed trees and downed power lines covering the road. so we are not able to get
access. i can tell you just judging by the field we are standing in front of you can see trees basically snipped right in half. of course this is part of the area where the tornado ripped through. it is estimated to be about 3/4 mile wide and did a path of destruction about seven miles. it hit the hardest right here south of cisco and lifted, tornado came back down once again a couple miles away just to the south. we've seen people out in the field looking for things. maybe things that were taken from their own homes. a couple of people have been back and forth and said those houses just beyond that bend are a total loss. of course we have had severe weather for the past several days in a row here in the south, the southern plains. we have been talking about severe weather since monday pretty much every single day. we've seen tornados. we've seen heavy downpours. we've seen flooding. we had large hail and gusty
winds. more than 40 tornado reports yesterday alone. we could see another round of severe weather later this afternoon. dallas already getting the rain as well as little rock. the target zone for the worst of the weather is basically an area just to the south of dallas between dallas and waco not far from where we are now. that's the area we are going to watch the next couple of hours for redevelopment with these storms. we are expecting severe weather today and again tomorrow. after that things should calm down a little bit. of course here south of cisco, they are trying to clean up. yet, we are expecting more storms. add insult to injury folks could see more rain today and more severe weather in areas like this that were hit yesterday. >> you can see the trees torn apart behind you there. what have you learned about the person who died yesterday in the tornado? >> reporter: they don't know any information about the person. we don't know if it's male or
female. the person we spoke to the public informations officer for this area said they believe the person was inside their home at the time of the tornado. we aren't certain. sirens didn't go off because this is a rural area south of cisco. cisco has sirens but they didn't go off because the storm was south. folks in this area don't have sirens. they have to rely on knowledge, their local meteorologist to get into their safe spot. unfortunately, we did have one person die, three people injured, one critical. >> wishing the best for those folks today. thank you, jennifer gray reporting in cisco, texas. let's head to south dakota where a blizzard warning is in effect. yes, it's the middle of spring. take a look at this video from our reporter at our affiliate kota. more heavy snow is expected in this state. on top of the 17 inches already blanketing parts of the state. we are joined by skype from
brooking, south dakota a state climatologist. what are conditions like where you are? >> where we are, we are on the eastern part of the state. we are more on the warm side. we have a little bit of that severe weather around us. there were tornado warnings already that happened and damage occur ing occurring in eastern south dakota. in the western part of the state where we have the big snowfall amounts, accumulating 6-10 inches and up to 15 in the black hills. >> is this snowy weather rare for south dakota this time of year? >> it is uncommon but not unprecedented. we did some looking on friday with the event coming up. we found three similar events in the last 50 years. yesterday was the 50th anniversary of that event. south dakota only has five tornados recorded on the same day much like we see right now.
just seven years ago, the first couple of days of may seven years ago, we had over 20 inches of snowfall in may. it's not unprecedented, but we don't expect it on a regular basis. >> only three times in 50 years. the cattle business is big in south dakota. is this cold weather posing any risk to the live stock at this point? >> we are still waiting to see what happens with them. we were trying to push out things quickly friday to remind people to watch out for young live stock. it's most problematic for young calves. fortunately, a lot of them were born a month or two ago so they have a little time underneath them. we are hoping this will not be too bad or too much damage for them. just a little over 1 1/2 years ago, fall of 2013 we had a major blizzard out here. that was quite different because that occurred in the fall before cattle were moved to winter pens. cattle were not ready for the winter. on the back side of winter this
is a time when cattle can survive much better. we are hoping this will not be too much. also fortunately, most of the bigger parts of the snowfall have been up in the black hills where there's not as many cattle. most of the snowfall would have been down the plains area where the cattle are on the 6-10 inch side. we are waiting to hear what the reports are for cattle losses. >> keep us posted on that. we've been talking about tornados tropical storm ana, blizzard conditions all this one weekend across the u.s. what do you make of what we are seeing? is this normal to some degree or random to some degree? >> well the situation with the tropical system this is a bit early for tropical systems to occur. obviously in south dakota we don't worry about tropical systems too much. the concept of having snowfall and severe weather around at the same time is really not that uncommon for us up here.
those same systems where you have cold air coming down warm air ahead of a low pressure area we expect those during the spring and latter part of winter depending how it lines up. do you get some severe weather, thunderstorms, hail tornados ahead of the system in the warm sector and back behind it if it's cold enough. in this case it's not terribly cold. it's below freezing. we expect to see those sometimes. just was reviewing situation happened several years ago where we had some places in the state right now we have severe weather in the eastern part and blizzards in the western part. we had occasions where we had simultaneous tornado watches and blizzard warnings for the same county because when you have this strong temperature contrast you can go from severe weather to cold right behind it and get the snow following it. again, not unprecedented by any stretch, but not something you see every day. >> definitely not. dennis thank you so much for
bringing your expertise to our show. we appreciate it. >> thanks for having me. coming up we are hearing startling comments about the terror threat here in the united states. just how safe are we now compared to 9/11? the emerging security dangers -- next. as my diabetes changed it got harder to control my blood sugar. today, i'm asking about levemir®. vo: levemir® is an injectable insulin that can give you blood sugar control for up to 24 hours. and levemir® helps lower your a1c. levemir® lasts 42 days without refrigeration. that's 50% longer than lantus® which lasts 28 days. levemir® comes in flextouch® the latest in insulin pen technology from novo nordisk. levemir® is a long-acting insulin used to control high blood sugar in adults and children with diabetes and is not recommended to treat diabetic ketoacidosis. do not use levemir® if you are allergic to any of its ingredients.

there are renewed concerns today over how safe the u.s. is from home grown terrorism. we are hearing startling comments about the terror threat in this country with one security expert saying just this weekend that the threat now is bigger than it was following 9/11. c nfrn cnn is at the white house with more. >> reporter: there is concern how isis is expanding the use of social media to reach out and recruit people inside the u.s. today the secretary department homeland security tom ridge said it's because of this online campaign by isis that he believes the threat is greater than in the days after 9/11. here is what he had to say on cnn state of the union. >> their appeal to the lone wolves and we've seen them acting in belgium, france canada and the united states the nature of the threats are far more complicated and far more serious today than on
september 12th 2001. >> reporter: the pentagon on thursday night put all military bases across the country on a heightened state of alert, increasing the threat level at 3,200 bases across the country. concern is isis is reaching out, recruiting people inside the u.s. to potentially target uniformed, military and law enforcement. the fbi director warned there are hundreds maybe even thousands of isis followers inside the u.s. the fbi has been increasing monitoring of these suspected followers who may be influenced by these recruiters and have hundreds of investigations ongoing. the homeland security secretary jeh johnson called this a new era in the country. he said because of this this use of the internet by isis there could be little or no advance warning of so-called lone wolf terrorists attacking here in the u.s. >> we are very definitely in a new environment because of
isil's effective use of social media the internet which has the ability to reach into the homeland and possibly inspire others. so our government and our state, local law enforcement are having to do a number of things to address that. >> reporter: on friday the secretary as well as the fbi director held a conference call with state and local officials urging them to beef up their efforts against isis. ana, the homeland security secretary said americans should not feel discouraged going out in public attending sporting events, but tells people to be vigilant in the face of this potential new threat. >> sumlen thank you. >> joining us by skype from florida is retired army lieutenant colonel james reese. it was president george w. bush's former secretary of homeland security who made that comment comparing the security threat today to the day following 9/11.
do you agree the danger could be greater now? >> happy mother's day to everyone out there. first, i don't think that the threat is greater. i think what we are trying to do here is post 9/11 changed the world for the u.s. what we go through are valleys and peaks of awareness for everyone. granted, we saw this attack in texas last week so that piques our interest. the problem is you can't keep your awareness, way call the red zone all the time. if you try to keep it up at that level, you literally don't have awareness. it's an up-and-down process we go. i don't think it's as great as people make it but it's our government trying to keep people up and bring them down to a smaller level at times. >> of course back in 2001 we didn't have social media or use it the way we do today. is part of the problem that technology has changed how terrorists operate? >> yeah.
absolutely. social media today, technology we i believe, are behind the power consecutive where we are with these folks. yesterday i gave a commencement speech at my university. to watch these young kids use social media, how fast they use it how they can look through things and move is incredible. one problem we have right now is we are failing in our great intelligence collection we have and fusing that with strategic aspect putting them together. it might be time for us to get our younger generation involved with this piece and counter isis and just trans national terrorism alone and put this strategic communication aspect out there and counter these aspects. >> i just want to make sure i understand one thing you just said. you believe that we are failing in our intelligence-collecting abilities right now? >> no. i believe we have a fantastic intelligence collection
capability but there is so much out there we stove pipe a lot of these aspects. because social media becomes another aspect of both a reactive intelligence collection and we can make it a proactive attack apparatus, propaganda and we have a tough time with the term propaganda where the threat does not. this is something we have to work through both nationally and at the administration level to figure out how we are going to do these type of things. >> it's not a simple solution. retired army lieutenant colonel james reese, we appreciate your time today. thank you. >> thanks. most presidential candidates would like you to think they're everyday people right? just ahead what really sets the 2016 contender as he part from the rest of us. this allergy season, will you be a sound sleeper, or a mouth breather. a mouth breather! well, put on a breathe right strip and shut your mouth. allergy medicines open your nose over time, but add a breathe right strip and pow!

to work together because there's a lot of pressure. we have andy roger, rafi all in one go. it gets intense. they are fashion models. they are basically athletes who don't want to do photo shoots. they are training and in the zone. >> three, two, one -- camera. >> this generation are the ones that get it. probably because of social media and the way pictures get out there. they get it and realize they've got to do so much of this stuff. >> dangerous weather overseas right now. supertyphoon slamming the north eastern philippines earlier today. it roared in as the equivalent of a category 5 atlantic hurricane with winds up to 160 miles per hour. here is what it was like as the eyewall of the storm made landfall. >> we are experiencing strong
winds and heavy rains. it is blowing away light material. there are still many people getting wet outside. >> now residents there are bracing for flash flooding and landslides. meteorologist tom sater has been tracking this super typhoon all weekend long. what's the latest? >> the latest is it's almost 3:00 in the morning. this made landfall at 5:00 p.m. and we have absolutely no word of what it's left in its wake. that's a big concern in the middle of the night in the darkness now. the typhoons same thing as a hurricane. super typhoon top of the strength category. this is equivalent to a category 5. here is china, southeast asia. we'll get in closer. it was just 1 1/2 years ago a super typhoon moved in south of manila and took 7,000 lives.
